*Don't Miss!* A less forthcoming but similar nose marries into richer yet more detailed middle weight flavors that are admirably fresh and pure before culminating in a palate staining, balanced and driving finish of striking length. This should make for a really lovely wine in a few years.
The 2009 Chablis Valmur emerges from the glass with tiny bursts of energy and vibrancy. This is a minimalist, understated wine graced with tremendous classiness from start to finish. It is also quite cool and reserved for the vintage. All in all, this is another winner from Moreau.
Bright lemon-yellow color; less gold than the Blanchot and Vaudesir. Reticent nose hints at soft citrus fruits and ripe pear. Large-scaled, sweet and rich if a bit youthfully inexpressive today. Firm mineral-driven acidity carries and lifts the finish of this impressively structured 2009. Lots of potential here, but in need of at least a couple years of bottle aging.
This cohesive white offers intensity to its apple, green plum and citrus flavors. The structure shows on the finish, as citrus and a hint of vanilla chime in on the aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2020.
